DuPont launches taste and texture dairy concepts
The campaign aims to bring a range of fresh dairy applications to the attention of dairy manufacturers in Europe and the Middle East.
DuPont exclusively highlighted eight concepts to FoodNavigator, targeting taste and texture opportunities in fresh fermented cheese and dessert markets, alongside newly launched DuPont Danisco ranges.
The CHOOZIT MC series had been especially formulated to achieve the desired taste and texture in the fresh, cottage, and continental cheese segments said the company. The range is a blend of selected strains allowing for fast and consistent acidification as part of a flexible manufacturing process with no compromise on diverse taste and texture requirements.
“The principle benefit of using CHOOZIT MC range is that it enables process flexibility so that it can be used in the manufacturing process of a number of cheeses,” said Annie Mornet, global business director. “This also allows manufacturers to use the same culture despite a change in their process, for example the length (long and short) and the temperature (low and high).”
The CHOOZIT ST 230 series answered an industry need for a soft stabilised cheese with the right taste and texture throughout shelf-life, said DuPont. It forms part of the newest generation of direct starter cultures combining both performance and cheese quality.
“The CHOOZIT ST 230 series also ensures iso-functional performance and controlled acidification while providing bacteriophage control to help manufacturers improve the shelf-life and functionality of their cheese,” said Mornet.
Finally, the YO-MIX 900 series had been developed for dairy manufacturers looking for a spoonable yogurt-style fermented product with a novel flavour profile, said DuPont. It provides a short and smooth texture with an attractive and stable flavour cocktail combining notes from both yogurt and sour cream.
“The YO-MIX 900 series gives a smooth and short texture with a unique flavour profile,” said Sonia Huppert, global business director. The range was applicable in set and stirred yoghurt styles, she added.
Signe Orberg, industry marketing manager – dairy for DuPont’s Europe and the Rest of the World division, said: “Consumer tastes and product textures are continually evolving, and dairy manufacturers are constantly on the lookout to introduce new, innovative and trend related products to take advantage of these new opportunities. By utilising DuPont technological and industrial capabilities, our ‘Do more than Dairy’ campaign offers some novel solutions.”
DuPont's latest offerings follow the launch in April of solutions targeting cost optimisation in the dairy industry.
